Review:

"Warner's second novel is a classic like his first one... glorious... powerful" ( Independent)

"A moving evocation of post- apocalyptic rave culture in the West Highlands of contemporary Scotland" ( Independent on Sunday)

"Prodigious powers of invention... marvellously dynamic prose... brilliant visual imagination... A greatly ambitious novel" ( Times Literary Supplement)

"Think of the inventiveness of Iain Banks filtered through the lurid lens of a David Lynch, with a soundtrack from Verve and Bob Dylan... These Demented Lands is fiction 'on the Outer Rim of everything'. Rave on, child" ( Scotsman)

"With a style that fuses poetic discipline with the riff-based scat of a hedonist" ( Esquire)
